At least 29 people have died in landslides caused by severe weather in West Pokot county, Kenya.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
The landslides, affecting the villages of Nyarkulian and Parua, were reportedly caused by heavy rains.
Officials say the villages have been cut off by flooded roads and at least one bridge was reportedly swept away.
President Uhuru Kenyatta said in a statement that his "heartfelt condolences" were with the relatives and friends of the victims.
Mr Kenyatta said there had been "massive destruction" of property and infrastructure, and that he has ordered armed forces and rescue services to the area to help.
Seven children were among the dead recovered so far, officials said.
